"That... is a Stone Mountain!"
It is a large granite mountain. They say only about 1% of the rock is exposed, the rest is underground. There is a carving on the front depicting some Civil War generals (this is the Southern U.S. after all!) and they say you can park 3 school buses on the back of General Lee's horse.
"So, how will we get to the top? Hike?" Lunette asked from the comfort of her papoose. We had a surprise for her... we were going to take a ride :)
Did I mention that I hate heights and tiny spaces? Sigh. Lunette and the girls were very brave.
Phew! Made it to the top...
And boy, what a view!
You can even see part of the Downtown Atlanta skyline.
We played and explored a bit at the top of the mountain, but it was getting cold. Yes, 55 degrees Fahrenheit is cold in the south. So it was time to head back down. Did I mention I hated heights and tiny spaces?
We made it back down, safe and sound. We made one more stop... more about that later. I think Lunette had a really fun time :)
